DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up TXT Error


#1

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: iamclouds.com

I ran this command:

sudo ./certbot-auto certonly --manual --preferred-challenges dns

It produced this output:
Please deploy a DNS TXT record under the name
_acme-challenge.oam01.iamclouds.com with the following value:

GncyZs8matAlfoKLDscOcyWfUvBd5GNceOnHa9t0CzI

Before continuing, verify the record is deployed.

After I added TXT value into Godday for my domain DNS, I got this error.

Before continuing, verify the record is deployed.

You entered the TXT record incorrectly at GoDaddy: https://letsdebug.net/oam01.iamclouds.com/6767

Try again, but this time, just use _acme-challenge.oam01 rather than typing in your entire domain. That should solve your problem.

Thanks a lot! It works now!
